International Women’s Day is March 8th, and next week will see a number of celebrations hosted to honour women, including the Barrie Chamber’s Women in Business Awards Lunch and a trade show to celebrate and support women at Base Borden. I hope you will find a way to celebrate your achievements and those of your women colleagues. While there are many women in business in Barrie, nationally the latest figure I read was that women made up only 16% of entrepreneurs.
I feel that we can change that statistic… so here is to all the women in Grow Vantage and elsewhere who are making a difference in our businesses and in our world. We are doing much that we can be proud of, and we can be an example for the next generation of women who are going to make their mark in society.
